He rolled back the years for many in the crowd, who were reminiscing of where they were and what they were doing when the songs were released years ago.

Opening the night was none other than Jackson Browne, who was the perfect fit to bring fans into the show.

Browne has been responsible for several successful albums in the ’70s and ’80s, such as Hold Out, and Running on Empty, which both achieved top 3 positions in the charts for long stretches.
